To receive the following Question from:

Councillor R Penhale-Thomas to the Cabinet Member – Climate Change and the Environment


‘Will the Cabinet Member outline how the Council is addressing the scourge of fly-tipping and dog fouling across the County Borough.’



Notice of Motion Proposed by Councillor Alex Williams:

Motion for Debate: Towards a more sustainable and resilient system of local government funding


That this Council:


           Notes that there has been a major sustained failure to properly fund local government;


           Notes that Bridgend County Borough Council’s future budget position is challenging, and that further significant budget reductions will be highly likely over the course of the medium term financial strategy which will have a negative impact on the provision of core services and the wellbeing of our residents;


           Calls on central government to implement a fairer and simplified funding formula which ends the series of ad hoc one-year settlements and ring-fenced competitive bidding;


           Calls on central government to consider the viability of moving towards a more sustainable and resilient system of local government funding which:


(1)       redistributes funds between local authorities more closely in line with an assessment of need; and

(2)        assigns a fixed percentage of national tax revenues to local authorities.


           Calls on the Welsh Government to establish a formalised standing Commission to act as a liaison between local and central government to consider any developing central government policies which would affect local government competencies and ensure that all national legislative commitments are fully funded.

To consider any item(s) of business in respect of which notice has been given in accordance with Part 4 (paragraph 4) of the Council Procedure Rules and which the person presiding at the meeting is of the opinion should by reason of special circumstances be transacted at the meeting as a matter of urgency.
